Give Kids A Smile celebrates its 17th anniversary in 2019!!
Through the ADA Foundation’s Give Kids A Smile program, launched nationally by the ADA in 2003, more than 5.5 million underserved children have received free oral health services. In 2017, these free services were provided by more than 30,000 dental team members, 8,000 of whom are dentists. GKAS would not be possible without the continued support of national sponsors Henry Schein, Colgate and KaVo Kerr.
Each year, Give Kids A Smile is celebrated nationally on the first Friday in February. GKAS events do not have to take place in February. Many GKAS events take place throughout the year, such as GKAS back-to-school events that take place in August. GKAS events are intended as touch points for children who do not receive dental care. The ultimate goal is to establish a dental home for these children and continuity of care, according to the ADA Foundation website.
We are thrilled to be promoting oral health for children, healthy nutritional practices, and proper brushing and flossing techniques every day at our office.
